A major music company uses TV to sell 150,000 CD’s and found out the promotion drove another 2,000,000 sales at retail. A financial service company needs to kick start their campaign to generate qualified leads for their home mortgage division and received 5 times the number of calls they expected. A major California health care provider was looking to inform senior citizens about their Medicare supplemental policy and wound up sending out over 40,000 videos.
